This volume addresses tensions that exist between two opposing approaches to psychology, the experimental/empirical and the cultural/humanistic approach. The author analyzes a series of writings by and about Fred Newman, the controversial American philosopher, psychotherapist, playwright and political activist. The resulting discussion addresses such questions as: what defines psychological method?; what is the subject matter of psychology?; and what does postmodern criticism of psychology look like?
